For the second straight season, Henrietta’s Haleigh Hogan was the 8-3A Most Valuable Player.

The Gillit sisters lead the Holliday Eagles to a share of the 8-3A district title with Bowie and City View. Retiring Holliday Coach, Keith Nichols, and his staff were selected as Coaching Staff of the Year. Ambri Harrigal, a senior, was name Co-Defensive MVP. The other two named in the Defensive MVP category were City View’s Mackenzie Cave and Henrietta senior, Kylee Halter.
